Chapter Summary

This chapter demonstrates the existence of evidence of serious violations of both IHL and Somali customary rules of warfare. It examines violations committed during the first phase of the conflict (1988 to 1990) between the Somali National Army and the Somali National Movement in the Northwest regions of Somalia. The chapter describes the violations committed in the central and southern regions during the conflict between the SNA on the one hand and the USC and the SPM rebels on the other hand in the last eighteen months before the collapse of the state. The chapter also examines the conflicts between the various non-state clan and sub-clan-based armed groups in the period of fighting after the collapse of the state. The evidence presented in this chapter demonstrates that both state and non state armed groups in Somalia committed serious violation of IHL and Somali customary rules of warfare.
